Applied Intermediate Biostatistics

SPH BS 835

Students with a strong interest in statistical programming and a strong mathematical background are encouraged to take BS805 and BS852 rather than BS835, as students cannot take both BS835 and BS852 for credit. This course covers intermediate-level statistical methods commonly used in epidemiologic and public health research. The course has an applied focus, with emphasis on understanding research questions addressed by these methods, key assumptions these analyses rely on, and the presentation and interpretation of results. Students will use either the SAS or R statistical package to carry out analyses. Topics include multivariable regression models for continuous, binary, survival, and longitudinal outcome data, stratified and matched analyses of epidemiologic data, and analysis of survival data. This course will provide the student with training in intermediate level biostatistical analyses and the use of biostatistical software.
